Do you have pillows or cushions in need of covering?
I realized the other day that I have a LOT of pillows and cushions around the house that are definitely in need of work. Many are worn out, faded, stained or otherwise. I thought about recovering all these pillows and while it seems like a simple task to size, cut and sew the material, the process is complicated enough to benefit from a pattern and some instructions.
So I decided to create a collection of the best pillowcase patterns and pillow cover designs that I could find. I have a lot of different pillows to deal with so I wanted a huge selection with many options and styles. As always, I want to share this collection with you in case you have the same requirement.
Pillowcase patterns are a great first project
Pillowcases are great first projects for young sewists. In fact, when I was trying to get my own teenage daughter into sewing, the trusty pillowcase was there I started. You can read about this and watch the video she made about the whole process HERE.

I really love your ideas–so many of them will have me looking at things that I wasn’t looking for but stumble upon so many variations ,then time flies and my imagination soars. Thank you and keep it up.

What I’m looking for, if you have any suggestions, is a tutorial for making a v-shaped pillowcase for my support pillow. I can’t find the cases anywhere (and can’t afford them in the one place I did find!), so thought I’d make my own using some of the lovely material I have in my stash. But I can’t find a pattern anywhere, especially not one that’s simple and without lots of complicated buttons, zips etc on it! Any ideas?
Thanks for the many choices.
